go ahead. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was senator john mccain grilling his old friend chuck hagel last week at hagel's confirmation hearing. the senate armed services committee was supposed to vote today on hagel's nomination to head the pentagon, but that vote has been postponed after republicans said they hadn't received sufficient information about hagel's financial records and specifically about any payments he's received from foreign sources. that's an odd hurdle given that republicans never seem concerned about foreign revenue sources when it came to nominees from george w. bush. one democratic official working on the hagel nomination told politico, quote, what they're asking is unprecedented, and it's clear that it's information that he's unable to provide. hagel says he can't provide it because it would violate confidentiality of the boards that he serves on. of course, critics say this is about more than incomplete financial records. so why are republicans really holding up hagel's nomination? aaron david miller is vice president for new initiatives at the woodrow w

related or similar to what his tax increases have done. >> but at the same time, senator, both john mccain as well as speaker boehner have both called these cuts incredibly dangerous as well. >> well, it's dangerous in the sense that most of the cuts or at least half of them are coming directly from the military, which has already experienced some budget cuts. so the defense system in our country is only about 20% of total spending, but 50% of the cuts come from it. and in that sense, it does weaken our security. but defense spending will still increase 16% over the next ten years. so, there are no cuts here. there's a slight reduction in the increases of spending. the real damage to our economy is going to come from the tax increases and other policies, such as the implementation of obama care. >> so, arianna, what were you hinting at before? you think these cuts will create more employment? will weaken economic growth? is that what you're suggesting? >> exactly. and, you know, i think senator demint and many republicans really believe that the major problem we're facing is the deficit an
